Additional information from the product listing:

“This Really Right Stuff camera body L-set is custom designed for the Nikon D780 and precision machined from solid blocks of 6061-T6 aluminum. Fully compatible with any 1.5″ standard dovetail (RRS standard) quick-release system, this plate features a precisely contoured anti-twist flange for a perfect fit that prevents twisting between the camera and base plate. The LCD screen articulation is not affected, and camera side accessory ports are fully accessible, with the addition to the L-set able to slide for increased cable clearance and tethering capability. Magnetic hex key storage allows for easy adjustment of L-section position, and an integrated QD socket allows for use of our quick-detach straps.

Really Right Stuff camera L-plates feature two dovetail mounting surfaces in the shape of an L; one on the bottom of your camera, and one on the left-hand side. This additional mounting option allows you to quickly change between landscape and portrait orientations while minimizing the need to recompose your shot, saving you time and hassle. Also, an L-plate keeps your gear centered directly above the tripod’s apex which helps maintain the best stability possible.

All of our quick-release plates utilize a custom machined ¼”-20 threaded, captive-style mounting screw that threads into the tripod mounting socket of your camera body.

As part of a modular system, this Nikon D780 base plate still functions as a traditional camera mounting plate, but also has the added flexibility of accepting a separate dedicated vertical L-component to create a fully modular L-plate with two dovetail mounting surfaces. You can purchase the dedicated vertical L-component as a separate add-on, or as a set package with the base plate.”
